When you think of the word zombie, you see an undead brain eating monster right? Wrong. There are actual real life zombies, not undead, but poisoned.
Fed an array of chemical concoctions usually as a punishment, or curse. Included in the concoctions are deadly nerve poisons which render the victim
completely helpless, such as blowfish, and other nasty stuff.
Here is an article on it:www.themystica.com...
"A zombie is a dead person that is brought back to life through means of Vodoun or necromancy, destroying the mental processes of this person through
the process. Most people consider zombies only to be the stuff of horror books and movies, but they do exist in Haiti in the present day. Thousands of
people in Haiti are considered to be zombies, some of which lead normal everyday lives with families, jobs and are respected citizens. It¹s even
considered to be a crime to make a zombie in Haiti.
Haitian Penal Code:
Article 249. It shall also be qualified as attempted murder the employment which may be made against any person of substances which, without causing
actual death, produce a lethargic coma more or less prolonged. If, after the person had been buried, the act shall be considered murder no matter what
To make a zombie, a voodoo practitioner makes a potion that consists of mainly the poison of the pufferfish (one of the strongest nerve poisons known
to man, the clinical drug norcuron has similar effects and is used during surgery) that is given to the intended victim. This causes severe
neurological damage, primarily effecting the left side of the brain (the left side of the brain controls speech, memory and motor skills). The victim
suddenly becomes lethargic, then slowly seems to die. In reality, the victim¹s respiration and pulse becomes so slow that it is nearly impossible to
detect. The victim retains full awareness as he is taken to the hospital, then perhaps to the morgue and finally as they are buried alive."
